Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

330ml Bottle from Arendsnest Proeflokaal, Amsterdam (€6.00):
Great stuff from La Trappe here, this one really didn’t seem like a 10% beer at all & this was largely down to the fact that the beer was so smooth to drink & the alcohol was almost completely masked in both the taste and the smell. The taste was a sweet, slightly dry one that proved incredibly easy to drink with some great, dark fruity flavours balancing well with the caramel & dark malts; amazing drinking. I’m already hoping to get my hands on the barrel aged version now.

Surprising light for a quadrupel. Nice head. Carbonation is above average for the style. Too sweet and caramelish for me. I had enough after two sips. Not better than a leffe with added alccol.

Bouteille 750ml. Couleur orange brûlé foncé opaque, mousse beige tenace laissant une dentelle évasive. Arôme de levure, malt caramélisé, alcool, fruits confits. Goût de malt caramélisé, caramel foncé, levure, légère amertume, cassonade. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen. Une quad un peu mince, mais savoureuse.

En trois points... 1) Brune aux reflets violacés. Le nez est très levuré, avec une pointe de petits fruits rouges bien mûrs et sucrés. 2) En bouche, c’est encore la levure des moines qui vole la vedette. J’ai aussi bu une Tripel cette semaine et la signature de la levure transparaît de la même manière dans cette Quadrupel. 3) Peut-être l’ai-je attaquée alors qu’elle était trop froide? Peut-être l’ai-je terminée trop froide – le produit se boit drôlement bien et la bouteille descend à un rythme dangereux. Une Quadrupel avec la «légèreté» d’une Dubbel.

750 bottle bought at Halles St-Jean. Aroma: caramel, toffee, background of banana, nuts and almonds. App: dark red, brownish, off white head and some nice lacing. Taste and palate: full creamy bodied, some vanilla in mouth, rich texture, medium sweetness, soft carbonation, sweet and alcohol finish. Overall: Doesn’t smell much but could be my cold playing tricks on me. Really enjoyed the mouthfeel, smooth for the palate. Rich but so easy to drink. A great quadrupel. Glad I bought more than one
